I'm not sure why the other reviews are for el Corral restaurant (which is very good mexican eatery) This is for Meelos the restaurant in the same shopping center. It is a little place so on Friday and Saturday evenings its almost impossible to get in with out a reservation.
The food is awesome! The service is very good! The owner Andre is great and personable. His wife makes the Tiramisu (so they don't always have it but most days they do). But if you have never had the Tiramisu there you must try it .... you could be ruined for life though I will warn you! Everyone I know that tries it says its AMAZING!

The previous four reviews are obviously for El Corral located around the corner from Meelo. Meelo is Italian/Greek not Mexican.
We arrived for dinner and sat ourselves since no one was in front to seat us, at a table with two dirty

OK, so I am from California, I must say, I do know good Mexican food. For the last eight years I have been disgusted my the dumb-downed so called Mexican food restaurants I have tried: watery beans, bland rice, awful picio di gallo...well, I stubled upon this little gem, El Corral, and love it! Great staff, service, descent prices. Their picio di gallo has cilantro in it-yay! Beans are thick and tasty, and the rice is savory with veggies. Aroz con pollo, taquitos, and by far, the best frozen margaritas ever, even my friends agree...hands down winner!

El Corral consistently impresses me. Their pico de gallo is the best in the Triangle. Their green sauce is tastey, especially on their Burro ala Roqueta. The roasted pork is delicious. And then there's the choriqueso: white cheese sauce with a hefty portion of chorizo... deadly but delicious!

My wife and I had the good fortune to stumble across El Corral a few weeks after moving to Durham, and we have been frequent patrons ever since. The wait staff is friendly and fast, and their food is out of this world. The cuisine has a more authentic mexican flair than many of the other places out there, and the hole-in-the-wall feel that makes you want to come back for more. The prices are low, and the portions are enormous. Give El Corral a try, you won't regret it!
